The UNESCO-listed Douro Valley is famed for its port wine, but with countless wineries to choose from, exploring the region without a guide can be overwhelming. This tour ensures you experience the Douro Valley at its very best, by dining on Douro cuisine at a celebrated villa and tasting award-winning bottles at two estates. To see the vineyard-lined Douro River from the water, upgrade to enjoy a cruise by traditional Rabelo boat.

You could sit in this park area and while away the day. The statue is quite commanding and the area around the park is quite interesting. We enjoyed a bit of down time here while we were in Porto.

This is an elegant monument to a former king of Portugal at the end of the central square, Placa Liberdade, not far from Sao Bento train station. Its impressive and it dominates that end of the placa but that's about it really.

Dom Pedro IV of Portugal was also Dom Pedro I, Emporer of Brazil. He was only King of Portugal between April 26 and May 2, 1826, but his liberal politics ensured the end of absolute monarchy in Portugal. His history is far too complex to go into here, but I suggest that it's worth researching. The bronze statue of him on horseback sits on a stone base, on which are famous scenes regarding the man. The statue is located in Praça da Liberdade, where you can have a coffee or meal at the one of the numerous cafés and restaurants in the vicinity.
